    This is another one i find humorous, at most of the places i golf at they are no longer allowed to spray for mosquitos, because they are scared the 6-7 small ponds on the course will become toxic and a few ducks will die, yet we have 5 million tax dollars to fight some "brown marmorated stink bug" whose name actually almost sounds like it is made up.

    Bartlett will be. They just approved a new re-districting plan designed to unseat him.
